The NC Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (NC BRFSS) is a comprehensive telephone survey of adults ages 18 and older. The sample size for the 2007 N.C. BRFSS was nearly 15,000. Every year a core set of tobacco questions are asked. In addition, tobacco modules on topics such as other tobacco products and counseling can be added. In 2007, 24 tobacco-related questions were asked on topics ranging from current smoking status to support for increasing the cigarette tax. The sampling scheme has been designed to produce estimates for local levels (26 counties and 3 regions) and for special populations such as Native Americans and Spanish-speaking and English-speaking Hispanics.
